Important Fundraising Information
The Burtonsville Volunteer Fire Department would like to make you aware of two important fund drive initiatives that are currently taking place.
Annual Fund Drive Mailing
You may have already received our annual fund drive letter in the mail. The BVFD relies on your generosity to cover the cost of apparatus, lifesaving equipment, and gear for our volunteers. Donations are tax deductible and can be made by check payable to BVFD or they can be made online through our website at www.bvfd.com by selecting the Donate tab. Donations from the community helped get this department started 70 years ago; we continue to rely upon our neighbors today. Any amount helps and is very much appreciated!
Annual Portrait Fundraiser
The BVFD Auxiliary has also started the annual family portrait fundraiser which allows you and your loved ones the opportunity to have a family portrait on site at your local Fire Department. Please note that the portrait drive began earlier this year than in the past, with the door-to-door solicitors making additional rounds in the next few weeks. Those canvasing neighborhoods for the portrait fundraiser will have a BVFD letter of authorization to display and we restrict the evening hours to be respectful to our community. Please feel free to contact the portrait drive Program Manager, Mr. Ed Williams at 240-675-6582, if you have any questions regarding this fundraiser.
We appreciate the opportunity to serve you and your family and as always, we thank you for your continued support.
Tami Bulla, President
